The 21-year-old’s current deal runs until 2025, with the option to extend it by a year.

But having impressed manager Erik ten Hag in pre-season and in cameos last term, he is set to be handed a bumper new deal.

Talks have already taken place and United view tying him down as a “priority”, claims journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that the club believe Pellistri is blossoming into a top talent.

He is set to be handed more first-team chances due to the situations with Jadon Sancho and Antony.

Sancho is involved in a public row with Ten Hag after claiming he has been made a “scapegoat” by his manager.

He is set for showdown talks with the Dutchman.

And Antony will not return to Man Utd “until further notice” amid abuse allegations from three women.


Pellistri joined the Red Devils from Penarol for £9million in 2020.

He has since been loaned out twice to Spanish side Deportivo Alaves.

The winger played ten times for United last season and stood out in pre-season as fans demanded he isn’t let go again.

Pellistri has come off the bench in matches versus Wolves and Tottenham this season.

Fans are looking forward to seeing him play more, one said: “About time – comes in and plays better than Sancho or Antony.”

Another added: “He’s got a bright future ahead of him.”

A third reacted: “I really hope Ten Hag gives him plenty of starts. He deserves it and he’s easily one of the most direct wingers we’ve got.”
